Chris Christie

Proposes social security cuts

14 Apr, 2015

Christie calls for cuts in social security and raising Medicare premiums for upper income retirees, as well as giving states more control over Medicaid, the joint federal-state health program for the poor, and for requiring the poor to pay some amount out-of-pocket for their care. He also proposes changes to the Social Security disability program that would limit access to benefits for some people.

Do we really believe that the wealthiest Americans need to take from younger, hard-working Americans to receive what, for most of them, is a modest monthly Social Security check?
